Review request for kdelibs and David Faure.


- Updated patch to fix the stale permission bug without affecting existing behavior.
- Added a unit test


If you open a directory that contains other directories in Konqueror or Dolphin, change the permission of one of these directories from outside, say the command line, and right click on the same directory to look at the permission tab in the properties dialog, you will see that the permission change has not been updated. This patch addresses that bug.

This addresses bug 173733.

Diffs (updated)

  kio/kio/kdirlister.cpp 94b1d1d 
  kio/tests/kdirlistertest.h 1b117bb 
  kio/tests/kdirlistertest.cpp a0b296d 


Testing (updated)

1. In konsole, create a test directory within another test directory:
     mkdir -p test/test1

2. Open Dolphin or Konqueror and navigate to "test".
3. In konsole, cd into the first test directory:
     cd test

4. In konsole, change the permission of 'test1'. For example,
     chmod go-rx

5. In the open Dolphin or Konqueror, right click on "test1", select properties and click on permission tab.

6. Validate whether or not the permission shown in the GUI matches what you see in the command line.
